Airborne Cold Remedy
0

15 posts in this topic

Hello!

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried the Airborne herbal treatment to ward off colds from germ-infested places, such as classroom or airplane. Its an effervecent that dissolves in water. It is supposed to help prevent getting sick with a cold. It was created by a school teacher who was tired of always getting sick.

I'm also a school teacher, live in NYC (ride subways and shop in big department stores) and am exposed to millions of germs each day. Id really like to try it, but Im scared it will make me sick (Celiac-sick, that is).

Does anyone know if its gluten-free and safe for Celiacs???

I just took this yesterday and I got sooooo sick from it. I don't think it was because of gluten though, it didn't feel like I was glutened. But it made me throw up, alot! I heaved almost continually for three hours, I had to go to the doctor to get a shot to stop throwing up. It was a terrible experience. If I never see this stuff again it will be too soon! I'm not saying you shouldn't take it, it just didn't agree with me. ;)

I have used it without any kind of reaction. I am assuming that it is gluten-free. My husband has had multiple colds this winter and Airborne has significantly shortened the days that he felt sick. Everyone I know, swears by it. MY one neighbor takes it before he goes anywhere that is crowded.

I Took airborne last week for the first time, I got shakes really bad after the 2nd dosage. I thought maybe it was because I hadnt had any tea. so I had some & it didnt help.I waited longer then what the time frame says & I was fine as long as I put an extra hour or 2 inbetween dosages.

Maybe it was the overdose of vitamins? I know my tummy can't handle large doses of vitamins at all :ph34r:

I think it is gluten free. At least I certainly hope so, I've taken a lot of it. I've never had any issues with it.

The original Airborne is gluten free and soy free. I called a while ago. Some of the kids flavors contain either gluten or soy - sorry, can't remember which, I avoid both. My whole family has taken the original Orange flavor Airborne and been fine.

Hth,

I just took Equate's generic brand of Airborne (called AirHealth) and although it looks gluten free, contains sorbitol, which can cause IBS symptoms. After taking it I feel really sick too so I'm assuming it's because of the sorbitol. Does regular Airborne contain sorbitol as well? I definitely won't be doing the generic brand again...

I called twice, over 6 months ago and about 2 months ago. The regular Airborne is gluten free.

It is gluten-free, however, the company recently lost millions of dollars in a lawsuit because the product basically does not work. They guarantee satisfaction and ended up having to return lots of money to customers.

Here is a link about the case:

Maybe you want to save your money.

I was just going to post this! :lol:

I never tried it because the description reminded me of Alka-Seltzer which I detest. My daughter tried it once and said it tasted "gross." (It didn't work for her, either.)
